While the overall crime rate in the U.S. has dropped over the past decades, every single day, 91 people die from gun violence—from schoolchildren to victims of domestic violence, to people accidently caught in the crossfire. Join Sarah Clements, whose mother survived the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and Jessica Mindich, founder of the Caliber Collection. This business and non-profit foundation makes jewelry from illegal guns acquired through voluntary gun buyback and amnesty programs. Wesley Lowery, Pultizer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter and author of the upcoming book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice Movement, steers the conversation.
